Tasty Tuesday // Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

banana bread baked oatmeal // vegan & gluten-free I’m a breakfast lover that’s for sure. I’d heard about baked oatmeal, but to be honest I’d never given it a try before. I figured why not combine it with one of my all-time favorites, classic banana bread which for me is a no-fail treat. I ended up with this banana bread baked oatmeal that actually tastes like cake. Cake for breakfast? Yes, please. I could munch on this all winter long. It makes the most perfect start to the day, plus it’s vegan, gluten-free, and free of refined sugar!

You can make a big portion ahead of time and keep it in the fridge to reheat it whenever you want it. I even had some as dessert the other day because I was craving something sweet but was lazy and didn’t want to make anything. This banana bread oatmeal came to my rescue!

I added in coconut sugar and a dash of maple syrup which actually made it taste like cake. I kept the recipe vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, oil-free, and nut-free so it’s completely allergy-friendly. And it tastes just like a slice of banana bread!

Plus, you don’t have that runny consistency that ends up making a mess. Baked oatmeal and banana bread are truly just a match made in heaven. It seriously made my whole apartment smell like Christmas time.

Stick a fork through and if it comes out clean, then you know your baked oatmeal is ready! I definitely recommend drizzling some maple syrup on top, pouring some fresh almond milk over it, or serving it alongside a cup of tea.
